WIOA has made the tough decision to postpone the SA conference that was scheduled to be conducted in August to 2022.

We look forward to great support for this important event in SA.

After reviewing all available information on the current state of COVID restrictions and other stakeholder feedback relating to the NSW Conference in March 2021, we have decided that it is in WIOA’s and the industry’s best interest to postpone the NSW conference to the last week of October 2021.

The WIOA NSW Water Industry Operations Conference & Exhibition will now be held on Wednesday 27 & Thursday 28th of October 2021. We look forward to great support for this important event in Tamworth.

Consider nominating operational employees who have excelled in the workplace for the prestigious Operator of the Year awards in your state to recognise the important work done by operators.

As a winner, these outstanding operators join the WIOA tour group to hopefully be able to attend the WIOG New Zealand 2021 conference.
